Can Barack Obama Ban Guns By Executive Order?

Posted on: January 14th, 2013

This week Vice President Joe Biden alluded to Barack Obama possibly using executive order to impose gun control. Biden said this during a meeting surrounded by several gun control groups and gun violence victims. The question on many people’s minds is, “Can this actually happen?”

First, let’s understand what an executive order actually is. It is supposed to be an order delivered by the President to those under his authority, sort of like the CEO of a company giving direction to those under him. According to the National Archives:

Executive orders are official documents, numbered consecutively, through which the President of the United States manages the operations of the Federal Government.

The text of Executive orders appears in the daily Federal Register as each Executive order is signed by the President and received by the Office of the Federal Register. The text of Executive orders beginning with Executive Order 7316 of March 13, 1936, also appears in the sequential editions of Title 3 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).

    NO. Obama can not simply write an EO that would in any way alter any amendment to our Constitution. He simply does not have that authority. If he takes it-he is violating his Oath of Office

      Steve, I’m very sorry to fill you in buddy but has mobaaaama not already violated that very Oath on many separate occasions without Any reprisals?

  • Docs357

    We need to EO HIM OUT OF OFFICE

  • Tonto

    Be afraid. Be very afraid.

      The only thing to fear from him is if you bend over in front of him./ But in all seriousness all of my daughters could beat the sheet out of this { I experimented with homosexuality when I was in school } fruit cake. Soros and others appointed him our ruler but they underestimated Americans. Time for these RULERS is growing short. You bastards are not ready for or cannot escape what you have begun ! God save your souls and God bless America !

        There are pitchers and there are catchers…I’m willing to bet obozos’ a catcher…

        • Wayne_1958

          I would not bet against you Sarah.

    My guess is if he trys to ban guns or push his crap on the American people he will be the first black president in office and the first president to cause a revolt of the people.

  • Berzrkr50

    The answer to that question is: NO. He simply doesn’t have the authority to ban guns completely.

    • 1tymtrvlr

      He does not have the authority to ban guns at all. The U.S. Constitution is the last word on the subject, period. maosebama can kiss my shiney white ………you get the picture. When will you all realize, he is nothing, he has totally overstepped his authority, he is now an irrelevent child. The government works for us, we are not to be oppressed with welfare taxation, paying the way for his parasitic constituents. He has broken the law, by not enforcing our immigration laws, even the existing gun laws, he and holder have been selling fully automatic weapons to his druglords.

      The punk is not looking out for America, he is jumping through hoops for china and the u.n. They want us disarmed.

      • kuntry crosby159@ymail.com

        The government works for us? We are not to be oppressed? He has broken every law that stands in his way, right? What has our government that can and will not oppress us done about it? Just what have We the People, myself included, done to stop him from doing any and every thing He and his puppetmasters want to do?

  • Buckhuntr

    If he attempts to overrule the 2nd Amendment by fiat we would have to depend on an intervention by the courts and we all know how dependable that can be. Remember that we are only one Supreme Court Justice away from a Progressive majority!! We currently have 4 Conservative Justices, 4 Progressive Justices and one Moderate Justice who can be unpredictable at best.

    • 1tymtrvlr

      You replace them with real American judges.

      Make 0 a martyr and then have Biden f things up like Johnson did after Kennedy? No, thanks.

    Evidently the ones, that count, to control such dictatorial actions are working with his agenda

  • 1tymtrvlr

    No, and if he tries, he is declaring war on free America, it is our guns that earned our freedom, and it will be by OUR guns that we will keep it. Now, where are all the military, law men and women who swore to protect the U.S.Constitution? Which of them are going to TRY and imprison Americans for NOT giving up their weapons? When they come for your guns they no longer bear the oath that they will protect the U.S. Constitution thereby making them an enemy of the United States and a domestic armed terrorist and enemy.

      He declared war on America a long time ago.

  • foxxybey

    The answer is no, if he can do this he can do away with the Constitution and that isn’t good for freedom. The right to own a weapon is in the Constitution and if he can destroy that one, he can forget the rest of them and makes him another Hitler, in the Marine Corps for 12 years I lived by a code. “Live Free or Die” if you love this country then your code should be the same.

  • gypsy314

    No because he will be impeached before this gets out of hand if our elected leaders do not want American blood on their hands. All of America knows gun free zones must go and our leaders need to remove all gun free zones law from our law books.

  • Steve Czaja

    He is just now beginning to be challenged. This time for his non-recess appointments. These things take time. The courts are slow. He simply does not have the authority to ban guns-unless they are already banned.(automatic weapons etc.)
    So I hate to break it to you good Bud, he will be held accountable….eventually. Not for everything but even he can’t BAN guns without a fight. Good buddy.
